The hostel had friendly staff and was very clean. But there were no other backpackers there and I didn't find anyone to meet. There were also lots of people who seemed to not be staying there roaming the halls, twice when I came into the lobby I found drunk people being told to leave by staff, so I didn't feel... More

This hostel is ok to stay for a night. It is clean and quite new renovated. However, the rooms are airconditioned and windows are not to be opened. The bathrooms are clean but it's very hot inside. I slept in a room ext to the elevator. It was loud during the night. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Dear Ananasana14 Thank you for your review. We do try to keep the place as immaculate as possible. Apologies if the bathrooms are hot. We do keep it well ventilated with fans but if the previous user(s) love to take long hot showers they can humidify up. Some of our rooms are next to the lift and we offer free... More

I recently stayed for three nights and had an enjoyable time. It may be a little more pricey than other hostels but the bathrooms are so clean(!), the rooms are comfortable and the kitchen facilities and lounge are great!! If you're looking for a nice, quiet time away from the party-goers and late-night hustle then this is the place. If... More

Stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. First impression of the place: Very well kept and organised. Rooms and toilet were very clean. The beds provided are definitely more comfortable and bigger than your average hostel. Everyone was provided with a locker in the room. Lockers were sufficiently large, enough to fit 2 day packs. Wifi is available in every... More

A very clean and well-run backpacker hostel. I stayed in a six-bed dorm, which was spotless, with linen and a towel provided. The hostel is in a central location but sufficiently far away from the nightlife to get a good night's sleep (it also helped that I was the only guest in the dorm). There was a moment of confusion...

I stayed here for four nights in August. Although I booked a four bed dorm, I was the only person booked into it. The reception staff were friendly, efficient and helpful with providing local tourist information. The dorm was spotless and had comfortable (non-creaky) bunks. The bathroom area was also very clean. Free wifi around the property is useful, and... More
